Windows Defender (download)
« on: 08. August 2008., 12:36:51 »


Windows Defender is software that helps protect your computer against pop-ups, slow performance, and security threats caused by spyware and other unwanted software by detecting and removing known spyware from your computer. Windows Defender features Real-Time Protection, a monitoring system that recommends actions against spyware when it's detected, minimizes interruptions, and helps you stay productive.

The benefits of installing Windows Defender include:

Spyware detection and removal

    * Windows Defender quickly and easily finds spyware and other unwanted programs that can slow down your computer, display annoying pop-up ads, change Internet settings, or use your private information without your consent.
    * Windows Defender eliminates detected spyware easily at your direction, and if you inadvertently remove programs that you actually want, it's easy to get them back.
    * Windows Defender allows you to schedule your scanning and removal times when it's convenient for you, whether it's on-demand or on a schedule that you set.

Improved Internet browsing safety


    * Windows Defender helps stop spyware before it infiltrates your computer. Windows Defender also offers a continuous safeguard designed to target all the ways that spyware can infiltrate your computer.
    * Windows Defender works without distracting you. It runs in the background and automatically handles spyware based on preferences that you set. You can use your computer with minimal interruption.

Protection against the latest threats

    * A dedicated team of Microsoft researchers continuously searches the Internet to discover new spyware and develop methods to counteract it.
    * A voluntary, worldwide network of Windows Defender users helps Microsoft determine which suspicious programs to classify as spyware. Participants help discover new threats quickly and notify Microsoft analysts, so that everyone is better protected. Anyone who uses Windows Defender can join this network and help report potential spyware to Microsoft.
    * To help protect your computer from the latest threats, you can choose to have updates that counteract new spyware automatically downloaded to your computer.

Windows Defender provides real-time protection against malware, without causing a drop in system performance.
Disable automatic execution of Windows Defender: The real-time protection of Windows Defender malware continues to run even though we have turned off their automatic execution. To turn it off completely is to follow these steps:
• Open the Control Panel.
• Select Windows Defender.
• Go to Tools on the menu.
• Select Options.
• Uncheck Start automatically when Windows starts.

Karma up! for you :)
btw, I was confused with 'BitDefender'...
Would this Defender detect autorun.inf related malwares? since VSE8.5 only detect autorun file but not the actual malware that autorun file links to.
well? understand ma bad English.

I think that detection of new Malwares depend only from Latest Update Definitions, no matter VSE, BitDefender or any other AV.

Most of the time, Win.Def. seems to come with a clean chit for my PC. While I am careful, I wonder whether it is effective in cleaning stuff up. Maybe someone else has a better experience in showing results on infected PCs.

I wonder also whether Windows Defender actually clean stuff up and protects. It will however alert you when something changes (background software installations for instance) which is nice, it is free also.

Also you can easy setup Windows Defender to install over a corporate network with GPO (group policy) and have definitions automatically be updated through WSUS (windows software update server).

Defender will record in eventlog when policies or software changes occur; handy for troubleshooting.

what are the plus's and minus's of the "automatic execution"?
